Russia Becomes China’s top crude oil supplier in April

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Russia overtook Saudi Arabia as China’s top crude oil supplier in April, customs data showed, with imports rising 18 percent from the same month a year earlier as refiners snapped up cheap raw materials amid a price war between the two producers. Crude oil shipments from Russia reached the top 7.2 million tons last month, equivalent to 1.75 million barrels per day (bpd), according to data from the General Administration of Customs released on Tuesday,  theedgemarkets.com reported. That compares with 1.49 million bpd in April 2019 and 1.66 million bpd in March
